How do Mesh Networks Work?

The idea behind the mesh network of ASUS Lyra is to provide multiple devices which hook up together to ensure better wireless coverage throughout your home. One of these router devices connects to your ISP's modem as normal, and then others are strategically placed elsewhere around your home, connecting wirelessly to one another, which serves to blanket your whole home with WiFi, ensuring a strong signal anyplace in your home.

The number of Lyra hubs you may need for your home largely depends on the size. ASUS recommends one Lyra hub for a home of up to 2000 square feet, two hubs for a home 2000-4000 square feet, and three hubs for a home 4000-6000 square feet. While these distances are a rough estimation, other factors could increase or decrease the number of hubs your home requires to create a reliable WiFi signal in all the areas that are important to you. Your primary Lyra hub must be connected to your ISP's modem, so it's a good idea to plan out where you might need additional hubs before making your purchase of additional ASUS Lyra hubs.

1 Connections

  1. Make sure you start the setup with the primary Lyra hub. You can identify it by looking where the ports are. You will see a blue label that says START.
